Skin rejuvenation can be achieved a number of ways, ranging from medical-grade skincare products, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, lasers, and other energy-based treatments. These treatments can resurface your skin, and, improve the texture, clarity and overall appearance.
Profound is the new FDA-approved, radio frequency (RF) treatment for skin tightening and added volume. Dr. Laura Bennack is the first to bring this state-of-the-art treatment to San Antonio.
Profound uses RF energy, coupled with micro-needles, and directs it into the deep dermis for dramatic tone and volumetric improvements of the skin in a single treatment.
The skin rejuvenation system is a minimally-invasive device that works from the outside in to tighten skin, increase skin volume and improve the oveall texture and tone of the skin. The laser works well on acne scars to improve their overall appearance.
Unlike some skin tightening treatments, most patients only need one session of Profound to achieve visible improvements in facial volume and skin tone.
Top benefits of the Profound treatment include:
- Decreases skin laxity
- Relatively painless procedure
- No incisions required
- Can be performed on all skin types
- Fractional, non-ablative skin rejuvenation treatment
- Few risks and side effects, regardless of skin type
- Accurate and precise delivery
- Affects both skin tone and skin volume
- Performed on an outpatient basis
- Consistent results
Is Profound Laser Suitable for Me?
People with drooping skin, particularly in the cheeks or jowls, are good candidates for Profound laser therapy. The radio frequency energy of Profound laser is color-blind, making it a safe therapy for all skin types.
A patient will benefit from Profound laser treatment if the indications of aging are noticeable on their skin. The Profound laser technique has helped patients in their mid-thirties to mid-seventies. Candidates should be generally healthy, have realistic expectations, and want to reverse signs of aging.
Patients who want to achieve younger, smoother, and more revitalized skin may be good candidates for Profound laser therapy. Prior to treatment, one of our experienced skincare professionals will perform a complete skin examination to evaluate if Profound is suitable for you.
The Profound Laser Procedure
To promote patient comfort, a local anesthetic will be given before the Profound laser treatment. To begin, the skincare professional will move the Profound handpiece across the target area slowly and gently to perform the microneedling treatment. While the microneedling is occurring, the handpiece will be administering RF energy to the tissues.
This creates microinjuries in the tissues, optimizing and encouraging new collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid synthesis. In this way, the skin repairs itself, creating natural results. To achieve an optimal outcome, only one Profound laser session is required. Depending on the areas treated, the therapy takes 30 to 90 minutes to complete.
After Profound Laser Treatment
Profound laser treatment kickstarts your body’s natural collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production, which is a continuous process that yields gradual results. While you can look forward to improvements as soon as two weeks following treatment, the best outcomes will be seen six months after your Profound therapy.
Patients usually notice increased suppleness, better definition, and fewer wrinkles after Profound laser treatment. After the treatment, some recovery time is required. Mild redness and swelling are to be expected around the treatment region, but this usually goes away in three to five days. Bruising and little red dots are also to be expected.
